Birdsview, Washington- An overdue and missing  person, 56 year old, Let Curvers of Anacortes, was found alive this evening after a tourist stopped for gas at the Baker Lake Grocery store on State Route 20 and  spotted a missing persons poster with a photo of Let and her missing, 1995 Chevrolet Truck on it.

The tourist asked the clerk, Randy,  if Let was still missing and  Randy told him she was. The unnamed tourist, then told Randy that he thought he had seen the missing vehicle on a trail earlier while he was sightseeing in the area but didn’t realize she or the truck was missing.  Randy notified Skagit 9-1-1, who notified  the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office.

After the initial report of Let, as a missing person, a  clerk, at the Grandy Lake Store reported seeing Let and her vehicle at the store at 8:11 am on the day she went missing. The store provided Deputies and family members  with video surveillance of Let, purchasing a one day “Discover” parking pass for Washington State Parks. As a Geo-Cacher and an avid outdoors person, this was a major tip for volunteer searchers. The tip  gave searchers a narrowed down starting point in the search. The video below was the only clue volunteer searchers had to go on.

Friends, family, co-workers, hikers, fellow Geo-Cachers and strangers from the Community,  came together as a community to go out and actively search for Let after she was reported missing by her husband, Jay. The goal, was to find her missing truck so an official Search and Rescue Mission could be launched. Shortly into the search, the group realized they needed a way to communicate in one place about the search efforts.

A social media Facebook page called Help Find Let Curver was started and community members posted where they had searched and when.  Several co-workers, including Samantha McDougle, kept in close contact with everyone and updated SkagitBreaking.com on search locations. Skagit Breaking even sent out two crews to assist in the search by driving some of the back roads and checking trail heads for her missing truck. The community searched nearly every trail head in the County in the five days she was missing.

We also used our reach into the community to help spread the word about the missing truck.  We partnered with several other local Social Media pages, including, Whatcom Scanner Report, Snohomish County Community and Crime, and the Concrete and Upriver Group because we didn’t know where Let had traveled to. There were several  local Geo-cashing and hiking social media  pages that assisted in the search by providing geo cache locations for searchers to check. Each community had admins, members and followers who were assisting in the search in one way or another. It was a true show of Community in the efforts to find, Let Curvers.

The outcome of this community search could not have been better. Let Curvers was found alive and transported to a local hospital in Sedro Woolley by Paramedics from Medic 7 for further evaluation.  The extent of her injuries or how she got stuck in the woods is not fully known at this time.  She was conscious and alert when she was transported.
